The Apex Skating Paradigm
Evidence-Based Training Methodology Designed To Optimize Skating Biomechanics
Apex Skating accelerates player development at every level by applying the latest tools in biomechanics, data science and on-ice tech to the most important skill in hockey: skating.
Since 2016, we’ve sharpened our approach with every player to get on the ice with us. From youth hockey camps throughout Canada and the US to the Boston Bruins and Pittsburgh Penguins, Apex Skating improves alongside every athlete. Through our partnership with the University of Ottawa, we validate our methods against cutting edge laboratory research, ensuring each program is optimized for player performance and injury prevention.
With headquarters in Ottawa and Los Angeles, Apex Skating serves players from the heart of hockey country as well as the new communities taking their place on the North American hockey stage.
Apex Skating uses every tool to improve skating performance, from our coaches’ eyes to our in-house proprietary tech. Every athlete at every session, from youth hockey campers in Southern California to an off-season NHL player in Toronto, gets the benefit of our full industry leading sports performance suite.
We’re not techies who have never battled to win the puck out of the corners. We’re not coaches whistling for wind sprints and shouting about effort. And we’re not quants who think the game is played on spreadsheets.
The Apex Skating team is from the ice. We’re former players who became strength & conditioning coaches, skills coaches and sport scientists dedicated to taking hockey players to the next level, whether they are in the juniors or the pros. That means combining the latest research and technology, our years of experience, and everything we learn from the players and coaches we work with to develop the most advanced athlete performance platform in our sport.
